That's an AOL--not a Google--search that you linked. Nevertheless, the problem reported on that page seems to indicate a misconfigured or malfunctioning mail gateway, not a DNS problem. Since you didn't post any details, I can't tell anything about the problem you were having.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
